Guy E. Rowe students learn to 'help each other when you need help' at Robert's Farm
My favorite part of Robert's Farm is when we were replanting plants. We were taking plants out of the greenhouse when they were in their flower stage. We had to plant then in a new area outside. The other part that I liked is when we were trying to find insects. The part that I really wanted to come was lunch because I was so hungry!
I think community service is important because if you want to be a gardener you need to go to Robert's Farm to learn what's good for the plants and what's not. You need to know when to move them out of the greenhouse when they are in their flower stage. That's why you should go there so you know how to do planting at your home.
My class and I went to Robert's Farm. My favorite part of the service learning trip was when we got to transplant lettuce plants from the greenhouses to the outside gardens. We transplanted the plants because they were in their flowering stage. The flowers will help attract pollinators like bees, butterflies and other flying insects.
My second favorite thing that we did at Robert's Farm was when we got to plant pole beans. We planted the seeds in a trench about two inches deep. the trench was next to a couple of poles with string weaved in between them. We planted them there so the vines could weave their way up the poles. Those were my two favorite things that we did on our service learning trip to Robert's Farm.
My class went to Robert's Farm Preserve. The first time we went there we planted marigolds. We couldn't go much because there was still a good amount of snow on the ground. The second time we went we did more stuff because there was no snow on the ground. First, we split up into two groups. The first activity my group did was learn information about producers, decomposers and pests. Then we went out to the gardens to look for some bugs. We found a slug and a spider. Next, we ate lunch and after that the two groups switched activities. Then my group tried different types of lettuce. I don't know what they are called but it was really good. After that we helped Dan who is the owner of Robert's Farm Preserve. We helped him by clearing out all the bad stuff in the gardens and then filling them with clean dirt.
For our service learning project, our class (Ms. Cayers' class) went to Robert's Farm Preserve. My favorite part was when we got to eat some of the produce they grow there. Some of the things they grow there rate fennel, lettuce, radishes and more.
To me the thing that tasted the best was the fennel because it tasted like licorice. It was very cool to be able to take it right off the plant and have it so fresh. Also, it was cool to know that it was grown right there without any machines.
Some of the other things we did were weeding one of the flower beds and filling it with more soil. One other thing we did was we learned about the different types of animals that live in and help gardens. Even though the other things were fun, my favorite part was still eating the produce they grow.
I did my community service project at Robert's Farm in Norway. One thing I learned is to help each other when you need help. Another thing I learned is to look with my other senses like taste, smell and feeling. I also learned how to tell if a tree is healthy by its sap. We also learned how to help out even in a tight spot. One more thing I learned was how to cooperate to solve problems.
When we work together there was nothing we could not do. If we do not get it right at first, we will get up and try again.
My favorite part of Robert's Farm was when we all planted a few plants of our own and that was the very first thing that my group did. The second thing that my group did was the teachers would put a piece of lettuce or kale in a paper bag from the greenhouse. In the greenhouse there were bunches of lettuce and kale. You then went in a greenhouse and located your plant. I got a piece of kale in my bag and I matched it with the correct one. Then we all had lunch and moved on to the next area. At the end of the day we played a game of tag.
The next time we were there we did similar things and we got to eat a lot of lettuce and radishes. We got to take plants out of the greenhouse and put them into the gardens. Then, after we did that we all got to water the plants. I really enjoyed my time at Robert's Farm!
At Robert's Farm we planted some seeds in the brown dirt in a row. It was fun to plant the seeds because the seeds were green, slimy, gooey and gross. At Robert's Farm we got to dig up some flowers and then we planted the flowers in a different spot at Robert's Farm. Then we got to pick up some worms and then we put the worms back into the dirt. We put the worms back into the dirt because the worms need dirt to live. I learned how to plant flowers and how to plant seeds and how to find worms in the dirt.
The garden I went to is Alan Day Community Garden. What I learned there is that there are a lot of pests in just one garden bed. I will name a couple of the pests like snails, slugs and a lot more. I also know that there are pets. Pets are like worms, ladybugs, praying mantis and a lot more. When I went to Alan Day Community Garden I learned that you should plant seeds about three inches deep. I also know that you can plant peas before anything else. When we went we planted lettuce, radishes and leeks. My favorite thing is that I got to meet two new people named rocky and Katie. Well, that's the end of my adventure.
When I did community service at Alan Day Community Garden I felt like I was helping the world. In my opinion I think everyone should help the world. When I did community service at Alan Day Community Garden, I did a lot of work! The work I did was watering and picking up garbage. It was fun and everyone did a fantastic job. They were planting and cleaning. It was so wonderful to see everyone helping the environment. The person who ran the place was really nice, kind and respectful. I felt very comfortable around her because she was such a nice lady. I hope we go back there again. It was very nice of them to let us help the community!
I went to the Alan Day Community Garden. My favorite part was walking there because I need to get some exercise. Next, my favorite part was that I was in the same group as my friend. Then, my other favorite part is that it we on a Friday so I had no homework. Also, I was carrying a bucket of water because I like to carry heavy stuff. My fifth favorite part is growing more plants. My sixth favorite part is learning what predators eat plants and stuff that helps plants. Finally, my favorite part is they taught me a lot of stuff including how to grow a garden.
